View Full Version : Can you freeze juice?
08-07-2008, 05:01 PM
I'm going on vacation tomorrow and I am left with a large number of veggies including about 8 pounds of carrots I bought for juicing (I had planned to do more juicing this week). It would be great if I could juice up the veggies and freeze everything, but I am wondering if it would be good and provide all of the beneifts, etc. Does anybody know?

Sorry Y'all, I did a search and found some old threads that gave me the answer. I see that you can freeze juice in a pinch, but you lose some benefits.

I freeze my juice and then drink it nice a frosty cold later in the day or the next day. Nice way to change it up to be honest.
You'll only lose nutrients over time I would think... not much at all in the short term.
Enjoy your vacation!

I live on a farm and freeze juice and purees all the time. Liquid fruit, especially, freezes much better than whole fruit. Whole fruit, no matter how well you package it, often gets freezer burn. There is some cell structure change when the fruit expands, though. Another thing, freezing kills parasites. So if there's any reason to be concerned (produce from Mexico, maybe?), freezing it may be a much better idea than letting it get old in the refrigerator (a lot of parasites thrive on room and refrigerator temperatures).
I have 6 plum trees full of fruit that's beginning to color up. I also have pears, apples and peaches plus small fruits. If I didn't freeze, I don't know what I'd do!

Some juices freeze really well, like orange juice and pineapple juice.
Carrot juice isn't quite the same after freezing.
When working, I like to make juice at night, freeze it, and then take it to work the next day. I'd do something like that for camping out too.

I wonder if you mixed the carrot with other freshly squeezed veggies if that would be okay. Ever tried that pilgrim?
